The Loosely Affiliated Peoples of Treeguard is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ed Abbey's head with a fair hand, and notable for its feral children, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 988 million Treeguarders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treefort. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Treeguardian economy, worth 125 trillion berries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,567 berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, the Treeguardian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Treeguard's national animal is the bunnyman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Treeguard is ranked 69,432nd in the world and 149th in Wintreath for Highest Economic Output, with 125 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
